The three autopsies were inconclusive. All they revealed was that he wasn't shot in the back like the eye witnesses originally claimed.
Dr. Michael Baden, the medical examiner, said that all but the last shot, which hit the top of Brown's head, would have been survivable, and attorneys argued that the trajectories of the head shots showed Brown was attempting to surrender to police. "It shows a back-to-front [trajectory] for both of those, and it supports what the witnesses said about him trying to surrender to the officer," Attorney Daryl Parks said. "His head was in a downward position. Had to be, for what had happened. Those types of facts are clear. And we believe that given those kinds of facts, this officer should have been arrested."
"It verifies the worst that the family thinks happened—that he was executed," said Crump. "It confirms what the witnesses said, that this was an execution. That's what the witnesses said from day one." Crump also argued that the trajectory of bullets through Brown's hand and arm make it "obvious" that "his hands were up at some point."
You just don't want to admit he was a violent 6'4 300lb thug that tried to bumrush a cop.
It appears that a man who got into an altercation with an officer about jaywalking was executed while trying to surrender to an officer after being shot. No witness I've seen have said the officer ordered him to surrender. This happened in an area where a large part of the population have felt bullied by the police.
Attempts to protest this were mostly met with more bullying by the police from Sunday, when the shooting happened, through Wednesday night. Due to working a couple of overnight shifts a week for the last month, I was up Wednesday night watching live streams pondering why a town in the US looked like a warzone and basic freedoms we enjoy in this country were being violently suppressed:
A number of factors lead to this: a lack of diversity in the local police force, violent elements in the mostly peaceful protester crowds, a police chief that seems more interested in the character assassination of what very much looks like the execution of a robbery suspect that was shot by a cop that didn't know he was a robbery suspect, & the St. Louis County PD playing military - poorly.
The transfer of the operations to the MO State Police was a great move by the Governor of MO, but it may be too late. Violent elements in the mostly peaceful protesting crowd lead to more issues between the police, the press, & innocent bystanders just last night. Now, along with the curfew, the National Guard are getting called in.
I do wonder why those that rallied around those gun nuts that didn't want to pay grazing fees for illegally grazing cattle on federal lands seem to be ok with this, though? I know the answer is racism, but it'll be "interesting" to hear what hoops they have to jump through in order to try and convince themselves & others its not.
Seriously, imagine if the local police brought the military surplus **** that they haven't been trained to use to that "standoff" & pointed guns at them.
